That sounds like my daily dog-walks. I usually go to the local demonstration forest trails - walking in summer, skiing in winter. Stress reduction and exercise at the same time. If we walk in town I get the exercise but not nearly as much stress reduction. I am lucky enough to live far away from a big crowded city, though.
